MAN Truck & Bus
In 2011, MAN set a 2020 climate target for its production facilities to reduce their absolute CO2 emissions by 25 percent compared with the base year 2008. This target was already reached in 2019 – and substantially exceeded with a reduction of 35.0 percent. This equates to a saving of around 141,024 tonnes of CO2.
Prevention and occupational safety measures once again resulted in the number of work-related accidents in all plants being reduced by 7.6 percent. MAN advocates the health and safety of its employees: "Accident prevention" and "Always safe is always good" are two campaigns that have been jointly developed and rolled out together with all the occupational safety experts at MAN Truck & Bus sites. Being part of the strategic "Safety first" initiative, these campaigns contribute to a sustainable reduction in accidents and an increase in safety awareness.
A drone is used at the Munich site to reveal heat loss from media lines in areas that are difficult to access. Using a thermal imaging camera to take records of all the media routes avoids elaborate inspections and enables early detection of leaks and defective insulation. It simultaneously provides better data for energy management and enables distribution losses to be better evaluated and resolved. Use of the drone at the Munich plant saves around 25,000 euros per year and avoids almost 125 tons of CO2.
All 15 MAN sites are certified according to the criteria of the ISO 9001 standard. MAN has additionally set itself the goal of having these sites certified according to the ISO 14001 environmental management standard. This has already been achieved for ten of the sites.
The total amount of waste arising from production facilities in the reporting year was around 86,234 tons, of which 91% was recycled. No waste was exported. The products that MAN manufactures consist mainly of materials that can be recycled. The company relies heavily on the recycling of metals in its foundries to save raw materials. Specified scrap metal from external recycling processes was purchased and recycled at the Nuremberg site. There too in the reporting year, MAN returned chips and scrap metal from its own production facilities back into the manufacturing process.
The training ratio is 7.0%, that is the ratio of apprentices to the core workforce in the sites that provide training. Around 567 apprentices and dual students (including those in Germany, Austria, Turkey and Poland) began their professional development with MAN Truck & Bus in 2019.
This was the amount that the MAN Group donated to charitable projects in 2019. The donations are usually closely related to our core business and are made to fund needs in education, science, culture and social affairs (social welfare, charitable and humanitarian projects and disaster relief).
